Announcing the Second Edition of “Exploring Arduino”
I’m thrilled to announce that the second edition of Exploring Arduino, my popular book, is now available! Learn more at ExploringArduino.com.
The Maker’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse
Brraaaiiiiinnnnsssss!!! When the zombie apocalypse inevitably occurs, will you be ready? I recently served as the Technical Editor for Simon Monk’s latest book, “The Maker’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.” The book introduces novice makers to electronics and programming through the lens of a theoretical zombie apocalypse. Learn how to use Arduino and Raspberry Pi to build surveillance equipment, zombie distractions, booby traps, and more!
LittleBits Hue Lighting Controller
My (Open Source) LittleBits Hue Lighting Controller project leverages the LittleBits Arduino Bit, a small linux computer (like a BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, or UDOO), and the Philips Hue Hub to easily control the state, brightness, and color of your Hue lightbulbs via a tactile interface.
It’s Arduino Day!
The Arduino project is turning 10 years old! That’s cause to celebrate. Let’s explore some of the amazing things that the Arduino platform has enabled… (and you can take 35% off the print copy of my book, Exploring Arduino!)
Pi BADGEr ePaper Weather Station
At the 2013 Open Hardware Summit, all attendees were given a hackable, ePaper badge (lovingly called a “BADGEr”) that could be used to display our credentials during the conference, and could be used for experimentation afterwards. I paired mine with a Raspberry Pi to create an auto-updating ePaper weather station that hangs on my wall.
Making Engineering Accessible with Arduino (Guest Post on Amazon’s Tech.Book Blog)
In a recent guest post on Amazon.com’s Tech.Book Blog, I explored a modern shift in technologies and education that has made engineering more accessible to the general public than ever before.
Announcing my New Book: Exploring Arduino
I’m excited to announce the publication of my new book, “Exploring Arduino!” It’s available for worldwide pre-order now, and will be available as an ebook by the end of the month!
My Arduino Tutorials go Global!
In recent months, my Arduino Tutorial Series has seen significant international expansion, with educational programs using them in Russia, India, several African countries, and in Universities around the United States.
Tutorial 15 for Arduino: GPS Tracking
This tutorial was featured on the Cooking-Hacks website on 07/18/2012 This was easily the most time I’ve spent producing an Arduino Tutorial. I’ve been sporadically walking around NYC with this GPS for weeks as I’ve tweaked the code and gotten it just right. If it wasn’t obvious from the title,[…]
Tutorial 14 for Arduino: Holiday Lights and Sounds
This is one that I’ve been excited about for a long time. When element14 asked me to put together a holiday special, I knew just what to do. This episode is the most technically complex so far; it covers non-inverting op-amp circuits, low-pass envelope detection filters, buffers, power management, and[…]
